This strain is a classic, true top cropping yeast strain from a traditional brewery in Cologne, Germany. Beers will exhibit some of the fruity character of an ale, with a clean lager like profile. It produces low or no detectable levels of diacetyl. This yeast may also be used to produce quick-conditioning pseudo-lager beers and ferments well at cold 55-60Â°F (13-16Â°C) range. This powdery strain results in yeast that remains in suspension post fermentation. It requires filtration or additional settling time to produce bright beers.
